Finding the best gaming monitor
This gaming monitor has a 37.5-inch curved screen with a 3840 x 1600 resolution. The UWQHD+ panel is ultrawide, allowing you to see more when you play your favorite PC games. That display also has a 175Hz refresh rate and a 1ms response time. NVIDIA G-SYNC support helps ensure gameplay is smooth as well.
The MSI MEG381CQR Plus features an IPS panel with a 1 billion to 1 contrast ratio. That screen has less image distortion and color shift when compared to other types of screens.
Those specs and its current discount make the MSI MEG381CQR one of Cyber Monday's best 4K and Ultrawide monitor deals.
If you like to stream as you game, or if you need to use your monitor for Zoom calls at work, the top of the monitor has a camera cradle that makes it easy to install a webcam.
